% that we can't afford and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> all right. i don't know about you, but to me, that sounds like a fairly staunch and unwavering position. and yet, the president did insist he's staying open to new ideas. take a listen to this one. >> i am open to new ideas, if the republican counterparts or some democrats have a great idea for us to raise revenue, maintain progressivity, make sure the middle class isn't getting hit, reduces our deficit, encourages growth, i'm not going to just slam the door in their face. i want to hear -- i want to hear ideas from everybody. >> all right. now, that second one -- that second one was pretty good, if you ask me. and again, i'm trying to be optimistic about tax reform rather than higher tax rates that will damage economic incentives. but does this really sound like somebody who's ready to make a deal? that's a big question. here now is cnbc contributor keith bicycoykin, and david web radio talk show host and co-founder of tea party 365. steve, did the president sound like he was rea

to do after yesterday. we'll talk more about the economy in a minute with david rosenburg. it was pretty clear yesterday that depending on how you wanted to spin it, could you say how do you do for another four years. i don't remember any euro news in the last six months no matter how bad it was, we didn't get it free handle. so there's more to it than just europe. >> it was the fiscal cliff, but also the financials got hit so hard. if it had been romney, the cliff would be less of a deal because they would stepped all of them. so now we know and we lettered it first hand yesterday. boehner said we're open to tax increase, but part of a bigger plan that involves spending cuts. dove did a bungee -- >> worst thing i ever did. >> but it goes down and then right back up. >> the worst part is you feel like you're connected on something, but don't. it's a free fall until the very he said and then he start to feel like i'm connected to something and it throws being back into the air. >> my question is let's say that it's not a bungee, let's say it's a rope. so you jump and then you -- that woul
to the economy. >> and that is a huge deal. the fact that president bush is still getting blamed for the economy is something that clearly is showing up in those poll numbers. lou: we appreciate it. thank you. great work last night. president obama winning a second term as his party added to its majority in the senate, counting independent democrats could have a caucus of 55 members up from 53. among the most closely watched races, a democrat elizabeth warren beating republican incumbent senator scott brown. and in indiana, the democratic congressman, jim donnelly, defeating richard. in missouri democratic incumbent successfully fought off a challenge by congressman taught a kid who was not able to recover from comments about women's bodies and pregnancies of an absurd nature. well, in virginia democrat tim kane defeated former fellow governor george allen in thh most expensive senate race in the country. more than $82 million spent on the race. in the house republicans retain their majority with at least 2303 seats. the democrats' 192. ten races have yet to be called. the republicans 233 seats
're saying. melissa: i don't know why you would want to raise taxes on anyone when the economy is basically stalled. just seems crazy to me. >> well, at some point, everyone says in washington that we need to do something about our deficit and here's a good place to start. if you need to actually bring in some revenue, the best place to do it is where it will do the least harm and that is on tax cuts for the wealthy. that is something that is really una sailable. if we were in conditions if we didn't have deficit issues, of course we wouldn't have needs to raise taxes on anyone. we have competing priorities and need to find a way to start paying for them. melissa: i think we don't have a revenue problem. we have a spending problem. we're like drunken sailors. we have a credit card and think we can run it up forever. we just can't. >> that also has consequence as everyone knows with the looming so-called fiscal cliff discussion, if you cut spending too much you drive the economy into an abyss. we would all like to say we simply cut spending and live within our means but it is not as simple a
in the broader economy. those comments live in just a few minutes. lori: interesting. the remarks coming after they come off of the weakest decline in a year. the markets near session highs, but will the market like what they hear? melissa: plus, what will the next four years mean for the oil and gas industry? the ceo will join us coming up. but it is time for stocks as we do every 15 minutes let's head to the floor of the new york stock exchange. stocks are climbing higher after the two-day drop. sandra: they did not start out that way, there was fear we would have another dramatic selloff today. now we are somewhat up from about 61 points. that is not exactly a rally. bouncing back a little bit ahead of the weekend, but still the worst two-day drop in a year, 434 points loss over that wednesday and thursday. as we face a fiscal cliff, consumer sentiment one piece of economic data that came out today better than expected in november hitting a five-year high, getting a little bit of a boost in the stock market. wholesale inventories 1.1% in september, above expectations, that is adding a bit t
thought that was amazing. it's a command economy. maybe they can pull it off. if they do it, they can take the whole world with them up, up. >> the governor hinting perhaps the data to be released tonight, tomorrow in china, will be better than expected. hinting at continuing slow growth. slow but it is growth and that's the important thing coming to china. we're getting notes and recognize there's certain china stocks. truck engines. we are seeing that last month was good. now, that's very contrary to what a lot of other retail and people saying retail commentary, distorted by the weather. but this china trade is gaining momentum, not losing momentum. at the same time that i feel that united states is losing momentum. >> interesting comments out of the boe. we knew that central banks doing nothing and governors now saying, qe which they have been pouring on for a long time, going to flatten out at the asset purchase levels and not having the impact. >> china trade. second is housing. i think they haven't done enough to be able to revitalize to be what i regard as the housing part of the g
, the economy bubbling is more kids smoking pot. really great idea. that's fantastic. >> sean: is america shifting? we have always said it's a center-right country. tonight, i will be honest, i am not so sure. when i saw the exit polls which i didn't believe, i was very skeptical. in the end, the polls ended up being more right than any of us thought. it shows certain issues where i am thinking, if this is true, i felt liberals were answering this. has the country moved to the left? or 51%? >> it's going to be tough to get out of this, but, no, i don't think permanently. by the way, in 2004, it was the same thing with an incumbent, kerry got nearly 10 million more votes than gore. you had the whole media on kerry's side and he still couldn't beat bush and republicans were wiped out in the congressional election. i gather america was not thrilled with the republicans in the middle of the last decade. yet, incumbency triumphed. you didn't see democrats turning around and saying, now, i am going to be patriotic and support the wars that helped america. things come and go. but i am worried ab
slow down our economy. >> president obama from his part came into the east room. he also drew a line, but the line he drew was not insisting on higher tax rates but on higher tax revenues. >>> i'm not wedded to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges, but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> so, larry, balance is the key for president obama, not necessarily increases in tax rates. signs of conciliation on both sides and late this afternoon the bipartisan policy center which has been pushing for a simpson bowles-type solution said they were encouraged by the flexibility shown on both side says. john harwood, appreciate it and let's get reaction, and we have republican whip senator john kyl from arizona and senator kyl as always, sir, thank you for coming on and let me just ask you, is this a new era of good feelings and is this an era of compromise and is this an era of common ground, mr. kyl? >> kumbaya. well, we hope so and you focused on precisely the issue here and maybe from what the
't that be good for the economy? the president is open to compromise, but he's not going to give away the store, not this year. he learned his lessons back in the lame duck session of congress, 2011. so today he openly rejected the mitt romney, john boehner solution for tax reform. >> what i will not do is to have a process that is vague, that says we're going to sort of, kind of raise revenue through dynamic scoring or closing loopholes that have not been identified. and the reason i won't do that is because i don't want to find ourselves in a position six months from now or a year from now, where lo and behold, the only way to close the deficit is to sock it to middle class families. >> now, that is the classiest way i have ever seen anybody say, you know what, somebody's got to pick up the bar tab, boys. this is what president obama ran against in the presidential election. mitt romney's approach to tax reform was, trust me. the american public wanted specifics. and president obama continued to give specifics today, but the economy wasn't the only thing on the president's mind today. earlier
's economy. can you put that number in perspective? 700,000 fewer jobs. >> i can put the report in perspective. it was turn ired by independent businesses that don't want to see their tax rate increased. it is counter to all other studies that i have seen on this thing. that report got in to my inbox and got deleted. >> okay. thank you for your honesty. >> doesn't make sense. it doesn't make any sense at all. >> you hear the number but thank you. that is what i was trying to get at. we heard president obama say if congress fails to come up with a deal by the end of the year, everyone's taxes will be going up. it would be bad for the economy. i was reading new york times this morning op-ed piece that said it may not be a bad thing if we drive over the fiscal cliff. it is worth points out the fiscal cliff isn't really a cliff. it's not like the debt ceiling confrontation where terrible things might with well have happened right away if the deadline had been missed. he goes on, this time nothing very bad will happen to the economy if the grooimt agreement isn't reached until a few
it in nine years. >> more economists coming around the u.s. economy in recession. economists looking at recession and that is the key, lackluster growth. reports making rounds on wall street, indicating we could see more slowing around the bend, with more on what they're hearing here is a liz macdonald with the bottom line. if you listen to these economists everyone is resetting their expectations. >> seeing four of ten, only 4 of 10 have been their sales estimates. that is not a good number. and other data from the same louis fed, very controversial study. they are -- their preliminary data is flashing fire engine red alarms and a recession is around the corner. the second or third quarter, a third of the gdp growth came from government spending on things like defense the we're seeing 227 stocks in correction mode, apple, google and microsoft and we are seeing a big indicator cutting signals, the number of companies that are cutting -- we are seeing a big tax increase of obamacare, in the fiscal cliff, but when you look at data from the s&p you see the u.s. economy entering recessio
and pushing the sequester off. it won't get us out of the problem and it will also hurt our economy. because the american people expect us to find common ground, we're willing to accept some additional revenues via tax reforl. >> now, when i hear that, i don't hear i'm okay letting taxes go up on some people. i hear i'm okay closing loopholes and deductions where some high income earners may pay more than others. is that a deal you could work with? >> the question is is, what is speaker boehner saying? he really talking about a balanced approach or what he used to talk about and republicans have claimed, which is another round of tax breaks for wealthy people will somehow trickle down, magically boost the economy so much that it will pay for itself and not increase the deficit. we know that doesn't work. and if that's what speaker boehner's talking about, then really, it's not going anywhere. now, if he's talking about what we call genuine budget revenue, that's a different story and if that's the case, i'd love to see his proposal. the president has put his on the table for revenue. let's s
. it has already started doing that. do you see broader implications for the stock market and economy? >> yes. the small-business start-ups are down. they will continue to be down. we have fewer ipos now than we had ten years ago. companies just don't want to be public because of all of the regulations. venture capital is down. there is less investment in new businesses. gerri: whose fault is that? whose fault is that? >> i think the fault is directly on the government because they have added a tremendous amount of insecurity. what we are talking about with obamacare, as of 2014, a barrage of provisions, taxes. i mean, what they are saying is that they are declaring war on business. this idea that what apple bees is doing is wrong is unbelievable. they have to make a profit. if they can make a profit, they have to reduce their employment. gerri: you say that will happen with a lot of businesses across the country, presumably there are lots of ways to get -- more than one way to find a solution. what do you think would work at this point to get these two sides together to find some kin
believe this will hurt the economy. by the way, you heard speaker boehner make that same statement earlier. melissa: what was your impression, i mean, i'm talking with him one-on-one? >> one of the things i get annoyed at is the idea that somehow the spending cuts, the automatic spending cuts will hurt the economy. i do not believe that. melissa: why? why do you not believe that? >> i do not think so. wall street has tumbled so much in the last week and that does not have anything to do with the spending cuts. we knew they were coming from the last year. melissa: it has to do with raising taxes. if you cut spending all of a sudden, how would that not hurt the economy? >> i went to the last five or six times in the last 100 years but we actually cut spending, it does not happen very often, as you know, melissa, and washington. if you cut spending, you make more money available to the private sector. by the way, the attitude that cutting private spending will hurt the economy, increasing government spending would reduce unemployment. that did not work out so well. i think those are two entir
the east room on the economy. that touches on the dysfunction in washington that americans say they hate. many think they went to bed to fix that. keeping them honest, not so fast. in seven weeks, the bush tax cuts expire, automatic spending cuts kick in. it's being called a fiscal cliff and even though it's more like the fiscal steep slope, heading down it it could do bad things to the economy. rolling down it, falling off it, have made markets nervous and credit rating agencies and economists of all stripes are warning about the consequences of not harming out a deal in time. politicians have been sending out mixed signals since the election. on the one hand, they are talking about common ground. take a look. >> we want our children to live in an america that isn't burdened by debt, isn't weakened by inequality. that isn't threatened by the disruptive power of a warming planet. >> the nation as you know is at a critical point. at a time like this, we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. >> if there is a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for to us find a w
the fiscal kind of steep slope heading down it could have some very bad implications for the economy. concerns about rolling down it or falling off it or whatever you want to call it have already made markets nervous and credit rating agencies and economists of all stripes are warning about the consequences of not hammering out a deal in time. politicians in both parties, well, they have been sending out mixed signals ever since the election. on the one hand, they're talking about common ground. take a look. >> we want our children to live in an america that isn't burdened by debt, that isn't weakened by inequality, that isn't threatened by the disruptive power of a warming planet. >> the nation as you know is at a critical point, at a time like this we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. if there's a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges that we all face as a nation. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's better to work together. everything doesn't have to be a fight. >> sounds
markets but the overall economy is walmart. which is why we're keeping close tabs on the world's biggest retailer's decision to kick off its black friday promotions earlier than ever. to talk about the ripple effects of that and hurricane sandy, burt fleck enfleckenger. >> start first with this black friday move which lets a lot of people start shopping on thanksgiving. smart move by walmart or a desperation move by walmart? >> sue, it's desperation retailing and desperation discounting. >> why? >> as tyler mathisen referenced earlier, it's ho ho ho to try to hold sales by opening 16 hours earlier for black friday this year and 22 hours earlier than the prior year. walmart's got two salient ships which will benefit the company. number one, last year they sold out of 32-inch tvs in the stores i was in this less than 22 minutes. secondly, the lines, people were freezing for a few to five hours and getting into to best buy by comparison right away. walmart guarantees it will be one hour in line. that's a benefit. >> burt, let me ask you though. last year when we saw this happen there was a
to hurt our economy and make job creation more difficult which is exactly what that plan would do. >> reporter: today the president argued closing loopholes alone won't be enough to cut the deficit. he'll have that argument face to face with wayne or friday. one of the most frequent criticisms we've heard over the past few years from members on both sides if you haven't done enough to reach out and build relationships. are there concrete ways you plan to approach your relationships with congress in the second term? >> look, i think there's no doubt that i can always do better. and i don't exempt myself from needing to do some self- reflection, and see if i can improve our working relationship. there are going to be times where there are fights, and i think those are fights that need to be had. >> reporter: the president warned today that if the two sides don't strike a deal, it could hurt the holiday shopping season and dampen holiday hiring, scott, as people prepare for the possibility that their tax rates will go up on january 1. >> pelley: thanks, nancy. it was all across europ
. and voters chose to continue to move forward with president obama. and his plan to rebuild the economy from the middle class out shs that's not just a talking point. that's a concept that americans embraced. >> you don't have a mandate unless you believe you have a mandate. if you negotiate like you have a mandate. are you confident or are democrats confident the president is going to draw the hard line when he has to. >> the president will not give back. and they have gone so far to say -- it doesn't get more clear than that. >> you mentioned bill crystal. when he steps up and says what he says, isn't giving boehner some cover to make the deal that there are some conservative media people out there with some influence that will give him some backup? it seems like solid messaging. >> my little kids use. >> has he lost his influence or just as strong. will he play into this? >> i don't think he's lost the influence that he should have. and he is a key to that super pac money. the super pac money is the big problem here that looms large over the reelections of many of these tea party republic
. >> clearly the deficit is a drag on our economy. and we can't continue to spend money that we don't have. i don't want to box myself in. i don't want to box anybody else in. i think it's important for us to come to an agreement with the president. this is his opportunity to lead. >> any word from the speaker, every word from the president being analyzed for hidden meanings. here's a quick snapshot. >> when he is not willing to negotiate on is raising taxes on the wealthiest americans. and that is where the battle lines will be drawn. >> the president's language is important. his words, i'm not wedded to every detail. i'm open to compromise. open to new ideas. but we are not going to do something that doesn't deal with the tax cuts. >> i think the tone of this is pretty good especially from the speaker this morning when he said, you know, i'm not going to box myself in. and i don't want to box the president in. >> let's get straight to our own kate bolduan, she's here with an excellent, excellent panel. >> excellent, excellent. i like the double excellent panel of unsolicited advice today. m
returns back to the white house. and with the economy limping back to health, the stakes could not be higher. the president headed back to washington where the voters decided he should stay for four more years. at his campaign headquarters in washington, he thanked staff and supporters. this, after a night of emotional celebration in his hometown of chicago. 20,000 turned out, sharing tears and hugs. >> a long campaign is now over. and whether i earned your vote or not, i have listened to you. i have learned from you. and you have made me a better president. >> reporter: a passionate speech. >> michelle, i have never loved you more. >> reporter: mixed with a little bit of humor, aimed at his daughters. >> i am so proud of you guys, but i will say that for now, one dog is probably enough. >> reporter: the president has held almost 200 campaign events, logging thousands of miles on board air force one, the two candidates spending nearly $900 million, making this the most expensive campaign in history. it is the victory that at times seemed impossible. and sharply divided electora
is the wrong prescription, given where our economy is. >> reporter: is it on the table to talk about? wealthier americans pitch in here. >> i made clear yesterday that raising tax rates is unacceptable and it couldn't even pass the house. putting increased revenues on the table, but through reforming our tax code. and i would do that, if the president were serious about solving our spending problem. and trying to secure our entitlement programs. the president and i have had various conversations. i'm confident that he and i can find the common ground necessary. >> reporter: so, you will talk about it, even if you believe it's the wrong approach, you'll talk about it. >> of course we'll talk about it. we talk about all kinds of things we may disagree on. i'm the most reasonable, responsible person here in washington. the president knows me. he knows that he and i can work together. the election's over. now it's time to get to work. >> reporter: and the speaker seemed confident that after this election, tea party members will be supportive of getting work done. so, i asked, will he still repeal o

ceos and business leaders talking about challenges with the global economy and one of the topics of conversation is likely to be news we are just now getting out of washington. the obama administration signaling that it is expanding the multi-year crackdown on bribes paid by u.s. companies to foreign officials under the foreign corrupt practices act and the administration out with new guidelines, 120 pages. the act that's been in place since the carter administration is too vague and putting u.s. companies at a competitive disadvantage. so now the department of justice and the securities exchange commission out with 120 pages of guidelines talking about what is a bribe, who is a foreign official. we've put all of these guidelines on our website. cnbc.com. you can read more about it. this is again something that business leaders have been clamoring for but they want changes in the law. we'll see if the guidelines are enough to ease their concerns. back to you. >> thank you very much, scott. let's get to it then. the clock is ticking in d.c. today on the fiscal cliff. 1:30 obama wi

. >> reporter: the economy could go off that cliff. so what exactly is the fiscal cliff? it is a nightmare combination of tax hikes and spending cuts that congress and the president agreed to. to force themselves into a compromise. but so far, they have not agreed on anything. so barring a last-minute fix at the stroke of midnight on new year's eve, the bush tax cuts expire. the alternative minimum tax kicks in. more than half of all married couples with two children would owe an additional $4,000 in taxes per year, for those with three children or more, that jumps to $4700, on top of that, the payroll tax cut would expire, so add on a 2% tax increase for most workers, with automatic spending cuts in a thousand government programs, including defense, medicare, extended unemployment benefits. everything but veteran's benefits and social security pension. congress says that action would act as a break on the economy, throwing it back into recession and could cause a market crash. >> people watching very closely is can the administration actually tackle those fiscal issues, or is there a risk

just consider mitt romney had won, he said he'd be focused exclusively on the economy, president-elect for a day and a half and then a sex scandal breaks out with his top generals. that would have been interesting to see how governor romney handled that moment. >> the other aspect of this story that i assume the country will get to, the media will get to quite quickly is the surveillance tape. i mean, this is pretty scary stuff. some of your e-mails to me and mine back to you, i don't want anybody reading them. >> yeah, that would be bad. you know, and it's interesting. here's the surveillance -- the architects of the surveillance tape caught up in the surveillance tape. that's the kind of thing that's so fascinating about it. >> but one of the fascinating degrees is the degrees to which broadwell and petraeus went to lengths to try and stop their e-mails being traced, by using this system of saving in the draft folder in their e-mail accounts and stuff. so they were clearly aware of the risk of being watched. and yet they still went ahead and sent e-mails on an extraordinary sca

, and that will almost certainly push the economy back into recession. so there's an awful lot at stake right now. what paul ryan said is very interesting because we had an editorial on monday from glenn hubbard, mitt romney's economic adviser, essentially saying that yes, we recognize we need to talk about tax increases for the rich. i mean, he actually stressed that that should be the starting point of a discussion. he didn't say, glenn hubbard, that he increases -- he wants to see increases in tax rates. he was looking at closing loopholes, things like that, but he was willing to put that on the table. the problem, though, is that even if advisers like glenn hubbard are saying that, what we're seeing is people like paul ryan still very much signaling strong opposition to that idea. >> what's your head count in the senate, the number of republicans -- >> in the senate? >> yeah. >> i think the senate will pass whatever the leaders agree to. i think like with most of these things now, they'll have to go to the house floor without knowing -- without the votes. the question is who can you lose and still
